Patsy Palmer reveals drug hell

Patsy Palmer, who plays Bianca Butcher in EastEnders, has confessed she is "lucky to be alive" after battling an addiction to drink and drugs.

The soap star revealed all on Piers Morgan's Life Stories, which airs on ITV this Saturday, and The Daily Mirror reports that Patsy admits she used to turn up for filming while still high on Class A drugs from partying the night before.

The 38-year-old said: "I knew that I didn't want to be doing it for a long time really, but I couldn't stop.

"I used to feel sometimes that it was easier to go into work because I didn't want to face my mum.

"How did I get through the day? Probably just sleeping. I'd get in, have a shower and see if I was meant to be on set."

She also revealed that had it not been for her mother, she might have lost custody of her eldest son Charley, who's now 19.

"My mum looked after my son, thank God," says Patsy. "If I didn't have my mum, social services would have quite rightly got involved and I would've lost him.

"I was just drinking and didn't know when to stop. I was taking a lot of ecstasy at that time, too.

"I'd say, 'I'm just popping out' and not come home for two days - sometimes longer. Just partying and drinking. I just didn't know when to stop."
